I will never forget NY-23
The candidacy of Doug Hoffman, who ran as the Conservative Party nominee against pro-abort, uber-RINO Dede Scozzafava was a killer for me. She dropped out and endorsed the Democrat. I cried when he lost. If you don’t remember just do a little Google work, but I think most of you do (here’s a sample). I sent him money, I called his campaign office and talked | Read More »
SC Tea Parties ROCK Precinct Reorgs and Beyond
Paying careful attention to Cold Warrior, Ron Robinson, and those who constantly spurred us to get involved at the precinct level and explained why it was so important, the tea parties/liberty groups in South Carolina worked hard on this in 2011. Using our email and phone network we educated each other on why and how, shared resources on how to educate and inspire our group | Read More »
The Work of the Tea Party Is Now … TO WORK
This is a concept that has rattled around in the back of my head for a while, a bit formless but I knew it was there and eventually I could share it with you … and then BAM! Bill Hennessey wrote it all out in his blog for me! Thanks Bill, for allowing me to be lazy and draft on your thoughts. We’ve heard in | Read More »
Tea Party gains ground in SC on Health Care Exchange Bill
About 10 days ago I asked this question: Why Set Up an Exchange Plan for a Law that is Unconstitutional? A few blogs picked up on this, the SC tea party community exchanged some emails and Facebook comments, and several folks took it upon themselves to contact their representatives asking that same question, bolstered by this FANTASTIC article by Michael F. Cannon of The Cato | Read More »
SC Education Lobby Siphons $ from public school classrooms
The Voice for School Choice has an article out this week outlining the many ways that that the South Carolina education lobby … which includes: public school teachers administrators superintendents school board members … has siphoned huge sums of money away from public school classrooms; money that is spent on formal lobbying, political contributions, campaigning, and media spin. They’ve consistently mis-informed both lawmakers and the | Read More »
Why Set Up an Exchange Plan for a Law that is Unconstitutional?
Were South Carolina Republican leaders not listening last November? Did they not get the message that the people of the Palmetto state are fed up with the direction in which Barack Obama and his socialist allies in Washington are taking our country? Across our state and our country, conservatives and tea party members rallied against “Obamacare” last year – and the Republican Party seized upon | Read More »
If GOP Freshmen do not vote “NO” on CR and debt ceiling, we won’t need to primary them
Erick with another brilliant analysis of what’s going on with the GOP leadership and the GOP freshmen. Read. Ponder. Read Again. Then call. If the GOP freshmen do not vote NO on the continuing resolution and if they do not vote NO on raising the debt ceiling, it will be the end of our Republic as we know it. Quite simply, the GOP will lose | Read More »
Would YOU ever vote to fund abortions with taxpayer $?
Or, how about “Would you ever vote to fund the unconstitutional Obamacare?” I bet our South Carolina freshman representatives, Trey Gowdy, Tim Scott, Mick Mulvaney, and Jeff Duncan would have answered “NO!” if asked that back in November right before / right after they were elected. I bet they all thought “Washington would never change them.” Yet in voting for the 2-week CR, that’s what | Read More »
